      I'd go with an 2011 all other things being equal. Most of the trouble-spots on the Routan are issues shared across model years and less engine-specific, such as the brake rotors warping and the...

      If you can find your local interstate distributor, they sell 'blemished' batteries for $35-$50. These are batteries that have sat on shelves at local area shops for too long, and they pick 'em back...

      I wasn't questioning the quality of what you ordered, nor interested in any Amsoil discussion generally. I know they say it "exceeds" ATF+4 standards and I will take that at face value. I'm sure it...

      VW dealerships can program them, but Mozart's story doesn't surprise me at all knowing stories of some VW dealerships. In any event, it's not uncommon for dealerships to do it as a courtesy (i.e.,...

      I would not hesitate going with 2012 SEL over any 2009-10 trim package if the 2012 is only a few thousand more. My only hesitation would be dependent on the comparable price of a 2013 Dodge GCV with...

      No idea, but wonder if it could be connected to the WIN module recall. That module is interconnected with other systems (e.g., AC) so it affects way more than just ignition.
